Horton Mill Community Primary School

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Our big question this half term is ‘How does the blossom become an apple?’

We will be exploring nature and learning about how plants grow. We will be looking at what is a blossom and why it is so important for the fruit we grow, could we grow any fruit in this country, what happened to the water that we put into the soil to help a plant grow, What do we mean by seed dispersal and why is it so important for our plants and why is it so important for us to look after the bees in our country. Through this learning challenge question, we will be making links to other curriculum subjects, such as art & design, music and literacy.

This term P.E will be on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. Our P.E teacher will be leading the session on Wednesday and dance teacher will lead the session on Thursday. Please can children make sure they come to school in their full P.E kits on these days. Children should wear plain black leggings or joggers, white t-shirt and a plain black sweatshirt or hoody. Trainers must be worn during PE sessions.

Children are expected to take their book bags home and bring the back to school the next morning on a daily basis. Children need to make sure they read at home on a regular basis. I also expect children to practise their spellings as they will be tested on these in school and also make sure they are regularly practising their timetables.

If you have any questions or wish to discuss your child’s learning, please see me or any member of the Year Three team before or after school. We are always happy to share the exciting learning of the children.
